About Me

Hi there!  I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help you with your real estate needs.  There are two things that energize me - living in the great city of Chicago and connecting with people.  As a real estate agent, I am able to combined these two passions and become your Real Estate Partner.  

My experience spans across first time home buyers, new construction, the luxury market and resale.  I am a Chicago neighborhood expert, passionate about knwoing what makes each neighborhood tick.  Whether it's a high-rise in River North, a bungalow in Albany Park or a Single Family Home in North Center, I'll help you find the best fit for you. Let me be your "Hood" in the 'hood!

My love of all things home began while working for HGTV for 20 years.  My sales career with HGTV has led me to be a masterful marketer and a fierce negotiator, skills that can only benefit you during your real estate journey.

My passion for Chicago comes from growing up as a Chicagoland native, living in the city for the past 25 years with my two kids and our dog Payton.  In my spare time, you will find me exploring this great city, from hiking through Montrose Bird Sanctuary, going to street fests and attending concerts at Millennium Park.  There's no better city in the world!


Clients are saying:

"I never realized just how much finding the right realtor matters until we worked with Karen. She treated us as if we were her only clients, and followed through on everything she said she would do throughout the entire process. She laughed with us, cried with us, and really made us feel like we weren't alone in this crazy journey. She completely exceeded my expectations! We will absolutely be working with her again."
